I guess it all depends on your perspective and how steep the hills are!  I was chasing Chuckars yesterday and swear the mountains have somehow gotten steeper! :D :D :D :D

It's curious to me on how antler colors vary. I've taken bucks that lived their whole life in a cedar swamp in the UP that were the color of Bibby's picture. I've got a nice shooter that I've been seeing around my home that has antlers the color of white chalk.

Last Sunday, he ran across my driveway as I was driving out at 2 in the afternoon. Tonight, I nearly hit him in the road, as I was slowing to turn in the driveway. I've had people hitting me up at the local restaraunts and our High School football games, that have seen him at night and want to hunt my yard.

This one is tending to a scrape - hope he decides to do some tending during the day  :D



Looks to be the same buck from a couple weeks earlier

Thanks!  I enjoy seeing them out on the property and looking for sheds in the spring since they aren't really hunted (no hunting on our watershed property and limited hunting on adjacent land).  This camera is hanging close to the boundary with some land that will be getting hunted this weekend  :D

Was out this morning and it was "just" past nocturnal time when a buck walked by.
So far, this is what I have. (will go out on the trail in about an hour to see what is at the end of it).
